Officials in Marion County, Texas has confirmed the death of a 40-year-old woman. The body was found on the campgrounds surrounding the Lake O' The Pines Reservoir.  

This was the caused by severe storms moving through East Texas during the pre-dawn hours Sunday morning.

Contrary to what was initially reported, there was only one death in the area, not four.  "Due to the tremendous debris field and heavy rain, it was difficult to assess.", says Marion County Sheriff, David McKnight.  

Please check back for more updates.  A survey crew for the National Weather Service will travel to Marion County today to assess whether the damage in the vicinity of the death was the result of a tornado or damaging straight-line winds.
